My understanding is that for streaming applications, you want to use a CBR rather than a VBR or ABR compression format.

This is not a close "M$" world any more.... or even Mac for that matter... There plenty of Linux users out there that would appreciate such app... I know Adobe Air deprecated Linux development ages ago but that does not mean you can drop Linux app support :P
The Abode Air app is ancient history... we've done the native app thing for a while now. First off, I should say that I'm a former Linux kernel hacker and I've been using it since kernel version 1.1.59... though I'm on a Mac these days. That said, not having it is not a huge deal (I hope). Honestly, just using it in a web browser should hopefully be sufficient as it'll have the same interface. The only reason I use the Mac app is for the fact that it minimizes and responds to the play/pause and skip keys on the keyboard.
If you feel strongly about it, feel free to hit up our support team with a request for it. Votes help. But realistically, I don't see it happening anytime soon.
